Wacky Wednesday #2: Minitroid
Since Metroid: Other M came out this week, I figured it would be nice to look at a particularly interesting game developed in the Metroid universe by a fan. Whereas Metroid: Other M is a story-driven title with a longer completion time than most previous games in the series, Minitroid promises to bring a much more condensed and story-free game into the mix.
When he originally announced the project, he cited:
So here's a little game I've spent a few days on practicing a new RAD program. There's not much to look at right now..just seeing if anyone thinks it would be interesting to play.. It's essentially a Metroid II minigame. At first I was thinking you do nothing but hunt various Metroid larvae which have infested the planet, but that could get boring after a while so I added a hornoad and plan to add other enemies..but then ya got a real mini Metroid II..hm. anyway..Now over a month later, the game's small, pixelart title seems to be shaping up quite well. There are a number of enemies to fight and Metroids to kill. It really looks like a Mini Metroid II in a way. Certainly worth a look at the gameplay.
Hopefully this one makes it out of the woodworks!
